531e1820-cdc4-4799-82d2-c6d1f80ea899-1667x2040

It’s always satisfying to witness a figure of speech made real. “Stopping traffic”: this is precisely what Tess Holliday is doing. Smouldering against a wall on a street in Red Hook, Brooklyn, thronged by the mini entourage of a professional photo shoot, she’s dressed in a corset and black cape, like some kind of vampish, […]

Roshi Porkar show, Berlin Fashion Week, Germany - 10 Jul 2014

I’ve never believed in age-appropriate dressing – when you’ve rocked out to the Rolling Stones or pogoed to the Pistols, that’s never going to happen. But there was a pivotal point in my mid-40s when I threw away my collection of shoestring-strap vests. The less-than-toned arms and too-lazy-for-the-gym attitude called time on skimpy tops. Admittedly, […]

The CFDA fashion awards – who won and who went?

CFDA Fashion Awards, New York, America - 01 Jun 2015

The CFDAs are no ordinary trade shindig. The Council of Fashion Designers of America’s fashion awards honour the leading lights of the US fashion world.

From the frow to the brow: how front row politics transcended fashion

6de0e522-8c1a-4856-a90c-8f50fe6033d0-620x372

There’s a very real reason the feudal systems have remained in our social consciousness since the ninth century.
